The Loan Readiness workshop covers business lending principles that every business owner should know before requesting funds from any financial institution or lending organization.  We cover the 5 C’s of Credit in detail, which are the most important factors that underwriters and loan officers analyze before approving a business loan.  We also discuss the difference between traditional Bank lenders and alternative lenders and the pros and cons of working with both.  If you need money to start your business or grow your business this is a “must-see” workshop before you apply for a business loan or line of credit.
